    The question thread

    I thought it was about time I posted another of my GC threads!

    Ok, here's what to do:

    I will post a general knowledge question, if you get the right answer you can post a question. You can't post a question until you have got an answer right, ok? Try to answer the question from your own knowledge, rather than just search on google

    Question: Who wrote the book To Kill a Mocking Bird?

    This is the sort of thread that should allow multiple questions going on at once, only you can't ask more than one without also getting one right! Otherwhise it'll be slow going.

    As far as I know it is either Quasar or Pulsar. It couldn't be a white dwarf, since a white dwarf is the end-stage of a star. A star has a lifecycle. First it will accumilate to an enormous size, like our sun is doing right now. At the height of this accumulation, it will stretch out as far as the orbit of Earth. After that, it will implode and shrink, but keeping the same weight as it had when it was at its biggest. When it has finished shrinking, it is called a white dwarf.

    You're correct redemption. Unless, of course, I've been completely asleep in my physics class, which I don't think I have been.....

    right

    now here's a simple question:
    what do MOSFET, CMOS, TTL stand for?

    you do realise i'm actually asking 3 questions but then based on the degree of simplicity i guess it should be ok? right sean?
